ICON Loading...

For sizzling hot graphics that won’t burn up your video card, take a look at this Zalman VF700-CU VGA Cooler. If you’re a gamer, or you work extensively with moving images, this device is a ‘must have.’ This specialized model keeps your GPU running at much lower temps for consistent, extraordinary graphic images.

A fan controller comes packaged with this exquisite model; thus, affording you the opportunity to switch the fan between ‘Normal’ mode, where sound dips to a mere 18.5 dB, and ‘Silent’ mode, where noise is totally eliminated. This means you can catch a flick or engage in other audio-intensive PC mayhem, without the whirring noise of the fan!

Not only does this VGA cooler include a dual-pipe heatsink crafted out of 100-percent pure copper to protect your video card, but 8 copper heatsinks designed to protect your RAM modules as well. After all, if your system memory fails to keep its cool, how can you expect graphics to look their finest? For high-end gaming and graphics protection, the Zalman VGA Cooler is the way to go.

  • newegg Pure Copper Heatsink Base and Fins A pure copper heatsink base and radially-aligned copper fins maximize heat dissipation surface area for excellent cooling performance.
  • newegg Silent Mode and Normal Mode Selection The VF700-Cu provides silent and normal operating modes through a bundled multi-connector power cable. Choose between operation without noise/vibration or optimal cooling performance to fit your own particular environment and preferences.
  • newegg Excellent Compatibility The Zalman VF700-Cu features flexible installation for broad compatibility with most contemporary ATI (up to Radeon X1800 series) and NVIDIA (up to GeForce 7800 GTX / 7900 GT) GPU-based video cards.

2 out of 5 eggsUgh...

Pros: Didn't burn up my $150 GTX 550 Ti AMP! card

Cons: This cooler didn't bring any of my temperatures down, not at idle, under medium load, and it brought up my temps under load. I had (with stock cooler) around 50C Idle then under load it was 85C. Well with this thing it was 50C idle and 90C under load. I feel lucky not to have burned up my card. Ill explain why this happened...

Other Thoughts: So if you don't have a 3-pin PWR FAN connector on you card then do not buy this cooler. You need a fan that's connected to your GPU or else when your card gets hot it will not increase your fan speed. This almost burned up my card kinda, I had no way to hook up the heatsink to the GPU so I just hooked it up to my mobo. THIS THING IS ONLY FOR OLDER CARDS AND CHEAPY CARDS! I really hope someone doesn't make the same mistake I did. Oh and my stock cooler looks hella better

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Purchase, worth every penny

Pros: I've had an ATI Radeon HD 4850 that came with its stock heatsink/fan two years ago. Recently, it has been idling at roughly 80-85 degrees Celsius, with loads of up to 94-104 degrees Celcius. Left the computer running at boot menu for a few hours to let the thermal paste and heatsinks get situated. Upon entry to windows, temperatures were cut in half. I'm seeing 38-42 degrees Celcius idle, upwards of 60 on high loads. Definitely worth buying!

Cons: The vga ram heatsinks werent as sticky as I thought, but they appear to be doing just fine.

Other Thoughts: This heatsink cooler is being used to hold me over until a newer card, but it is definitely a lifesaver when I was seeing such high temperatures before.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks Cool

Pros: Looks cool. Easy to install on an EVGA GeForce GTS 250. I had the card on another motherboard and had to cut the back corner off to get around the front panel wiring. The motherboard died so I refurbished the gpu. It keeps the a steady 45c temp but i'm not really sure what it was before. i use artic silver instead of the supplied paste.

Cons: I'm not sure how long the fins will stay attached to the memory. not really a con, but it seemed like a week adhesive of some type.

Other Thoughts: I think it looks pretty cool. I might put these types of heatsinks on all my cards from now on.

5 out of 5 eggsTop selling product and you can see why

Pros: I have been trying to find a way to lower my ATI Radeon HD 4850 overheating problem for over a year and I'm very happy about this purchase. With the stock fan, idle temp. were mid 50° C and full loads up to 85°C. With Zalman VF700, idle temperature starts at 40°C on boot and full loads only up to mid 60°C.

My case is pretty small, which is one of the main reasons for overheating with the stock fan, there is barely any room inside the case. And even with such little space, this thing cools my Radeon HD 4850 to temperatures I never seen. I saw a 35°C on idle the other day, it was a pretty chilly day.

I have owned this product for 3 weeks now and I run it on Normal speed. A little bit of fan noise, but nothing that will drive you mad. Wish I made this purchase a year ago, would've enjoyed gaming a lot more without the worry of a sudden crash or freeze.

Cons: None,

Copper thing cut my hand, but that's because I had to work in such a small space.

Other Thoughts: You need a SATA Motex adapter, or at least I needed one with my setup. I went to my local stores and couldn't find one. I thought that would've left me without a computer for a week since I had already installed the ram heatsinks. I couldn't put the stock fan back because that would've meant I had to buy thermal tape. (doesn't cost much, but you gotta be frugal when you can)

I installed the fan anyway (with no power, meaning the fan wasn't moving) and guess what? It works, I still had better cooling compared to the stock fan. It was running in the mid and high 40°C on idle. I never took it on full load because I wasn't sure what might happen. I also had the computer case open.

I got the SATA motex adapter a few days later and it's been running great since.

5 out of 5 eggsone of the best coolers available

Pros: for years it kept my 7800gt cool and OCd, and with very minor modification was able to change mounting holes to fit my HD 4670 (replaced the whiny stock fan) and 49C max temp on the low 5v setting.

Cons: not really a con, I had to dremel the inner mounting holes an additional 1/4" to fit the mounting hole pattern. However since this card is not designed for it, can't say it or the manufacturer is to blame.

Other Thoughts: Kudos to Zalman for making this card very simple to modify (just needed a 1/8" carbide bit under 10 bux)

5 out of 5 eggsZALMAN HAS GREAT TECH SUPPORT AND WARRANTY!

Pros: Keeps my 9500GT @ ~50C during gaming.
Great fitment!
Very versatile with ATi and nVidia cards
SUPER QUIET!!! Even at full speed you can barely hear it over the other fans
Blue LED is not too bright but not too dim either, just perfect
All copper construction is great!

Cons: The fan failed after 2 years. One email to Zalman and I had a new replacement sitting at my door 48 hours later. :)

Other Thoughts: Ive had this cooler on 3 different cards and fitment is great on every one!! This one is keeping my 9500 @ ~50c but I believe I could get it down to the ~45c if I use better thermal compound.

Zalman has the best tech support/warranty ever. My fan failed and I thought id be so out of luck on my HSF but Zalman shipped one right. I will continue using Zalman products for that reason.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to install. Runs very quiet. Cools very well. Pretty much all you could ask for in a cooler.

My card with stock cooling used to idle at 55c and go to anywhere between 60c and 70c during gaming.

With this cooler, my card idles at about 42c and went to 46c just now playing Crysis. Basically, this cooler is amazing.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I put this on an Nvidia 9800 GT BFG after the stock fan died, and I'm GLAD it did. This setup keeps the card so much cooler. This is my first experience with aftermarket cooling, so it shouldn't be too hard for anyone else. Just follow the instructions.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks great, full copper construction, quiet at low speed.

Pros: Full copper construction which is great for GPU's which make a tremendous amount of heat.
The price is great for what you are getting and it fits many video cards.

Its a bit loud at full speed but it lowers the temps about 10c. At low speed you can barely hear it and it still keeps the GPU at a good temp.

Cons: Your next PCI/PCI-E slow will be usless but it didnt bother me, maybe bother others though. Not worth deducting an egg over.

Other Thoughts: Purchased it to replace the dead fan in my 6600GT then transferred it over to my X1600XT. Fitment was great on both.

It complements other All-copper Zalman products like it did my 9500.
